Although retirement pay will be granted to any SEALs once they decide to stop participating in active duty, most SEALs are still of a young age and can still accomplish much more in their lives. Many of them will go on to have long and fulfilling careers in other fields, using the skills which they learned in the SEALs to push them further along a career achievement path. They are typically very successful, as SEAL training has prepared each of these men toward pulling together a team and never settling for less than their best. Those skills contribute to a strong work ethic that can be valued in any situation.
Former Navy SEALs are often very good at leadership and directing a team, as they will have been working closely with a number of other SEALs during their missions. They can delegate to the strengths of any individual team member and start plans in motion which bring success. Their organization is quick and efficient and as a result, when SEALs are placed into management positions, they will usually thrive. They know how to push their workers but still back them up with positive reinforcement.
SEALs will also typically have a number of skills relating to both design and execution, allowing them to enter fields which give them a creative yet practical outlet. Their people skills are also typically high, allowing them to work closely with the public, gaining their trust. Basically, any situation that a Navy SEAL would wish to move on to could end up proving to be a very profitable and rewarding one for that former SEAL!
